A year in the life of our Miss Riley

A Christmas Pictorial

on December 25, 2014

Presents have always been Riley’s biggest weakness. That first Christmas, when we coaxed her to open her own gifts may have been the teensiest little mistake because she then decided that All the Wrapped Things Belong to Her. I don’t think it’s a mistake, though, because it’s so entertaining.

Despite her age, opening presents this morning was still like the first fifteen minutes of Saving Private Ryan:


Fortunately for the people presents, she honestly has no interest in a package once the wrapping is off — that’s what she’s after:


Even though she doesn’t play with toys anymore, I still got her one, because, you know, Christmas. And my sister-in-law got her a Lambchop squeaky. She nosed around with them once the paper carnage was cleared:


Then, satisfied that things were back to normal, it was nap time:


Happy holidays to everyone, from Miss Riley and me!
